How to identify devices available to Access

I recently purchased an Access because I now have 11 Temperature Sensors and SmartHub only supports 10. I was fortunate to guess which sensor was the one not connected to the SmartHub. I warmed it up and was first on the list of sensors available to Access.

However, Access is supposed to be better about dropping connections and I'd like to transfer some other sensors to Access.

My question is how do I tell which sensor to pick to add to Access. They are all indistinguishable in the list. They do not have the names I've assigned to them. There is no sort of device id, etc.

The only thing I can think of is warm one up or take out the batteries and keep selecting devices until I run into it. That seems pretty tedious. Surely there is a way to display some sort of identifying information in the available devices list.

You can read the device ID's on the Access via your browser by putting in the Access IP address. You can find the IP address from your router which lists its IP with its Mac Address. The ID on the bottom of the Access is its Mac Address.

That works for the hub, but not for the thermometers to be attached to it. AFAICT there is no way to identify them.
